Fred Phelps Sr., the founder of the radical Westboro Baptist Church is reportedly near death. Phelps is 84. This so-called Kansas church has become infamous for its protests at military funerals and anti-gay sentiments, promoting “Gad Hates Fags”. From the WAPO, members of the Westboro church frequently protest at funerals of soldiers with signs containing messages like “Thank God for dead soldiers” and “Thank God for 9/11,” claiming the deaths are God’s punishment for American immorality and tolerance of homosexuality and abortion. I guess some one forgot to tell this group that God loves, he does not hate.
According to his estranged son via Facebook, Nathan Phelps, Fred Phelps is now on the edge of death at Midland Hospice house in Topeka, Kansas.” Nathan Phelps also said, the elder Phelps was ex-communicated from his own church last year. A second son of the elder Phelps Sr., Nate Phelps, also has confirmed that his father had been voted out of church.
The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., who founded a Kansas church that’s widely known for its protests at military funerals and anti-gay sentiments, is in a care facility.
Westboro Baptist Church spokesman Steve Drain said Sunday that Phelps is being cared for in a Shawnee County facility. Drain wouldn’t identify the facility but says Phelps is 84 and “having some health problems.”
The information is based on an email sent by the son, Nate Phelps, to a Topeka Capital-Journal reporter. Nate Phelps said his father is near death.
“(Fred) is at Midland Hospice House where, as of yesterday (Friday), he is comfortable without the respiratory difficultly that he was having the day before and is unresponsive,” Nate Phelps wrote, quoting a message sent to him.
After Fred Phelps Sr. was voted out of the church, he was moved to another house where he could be watched for fear of him hurting himself, then he “basically stopped eating and drinking,” Nate Phelps said in the email.
For many years, Fred Phelps Sr. and his wife, Margie Marie Phelps, lived in an upper floor of the church.
A Westboro Baptist Church spokesman declined to comment Sunday on whether a report that Pastor Fred Waldron Phelps Sr. has been excommunicated from the conservative church, known for its controversial anti-gay stance, that he founded in the 1950s.
Sorry, but HATE is not a religion. Isn’t this guy going to be in for a surprise when he finds the Pearly Gates locked and a sign that says, sorry, take this elevator straight to Hell.
KNOCK OUT GAME Continues: ‘Knock That White Boy [Cracker] Out’ … Arrests Made After Mob of Black Teens Attack Disabled White Vet … Hate Crime!!!
Just curious … is it so hard for the media to report a crime accurately … not once in any of the written articles do they reference specifically that this was a black on white crime and namely mention a mob of black teens assaulted a white man. You have to watch the VIDEO to hear the reporter say it.
Arrests have been made in the “knock out game” assault of a white, disabled veteran in Cleveland, Ohio. A mob of black teens harassed, attacked, robbed and taunted with racial slurs their white victim near Public Square. Matthew Robinson was riding the RTA’s Healthline when a group of black teen punks began harassing him and followed him off the bus and down the street to 6th and Euclid. Robinson said that the mob hurled threats and racial slurs at him as they were saying, ‘Knock that boy out!’ ‘White boy.’ ‘Cracker.’ They were saying, ‘Knock that white boy out.’” Hmm … No hate crime here, eh? Three suspects have been arrested by Cleveland and RTA police, Kenneth Matthews, Ronald Reid Williams and an unnamed 16 year old female minor. The unnamed girl had actually filmed the attack with her cell phone, and the video was still on her phone at the time of her apprehension. One of the two teens has also been charged in two other robberies similar to this one. Good grief, just send this punk to prison and do society a favor before he kills some one.
Sadly, not one person stepped into help this man. Not one. Let’s see if the Cleveland DA’s office has the CO-JONES to charge these punks with a “hate crime”.
Matthew Robinson, Disabled Army Veteran, Attacked By group of black teens in Cleveland, OH
A disabled Army vet spoke out about the latest attack that happened Friday, Feb. 7, 2014.
Matthew Robinson told our Ed Gallek he was riding RTA’s Healthline when six to eight teenagers surrounded him on the bus, and then started following him.
Then, he said they attacked, took his stuff, and videotaped what they were doing.
The incident went down at 6th and Euclid, and the crowd scattered when cops showed up.
Robinson told 19 Action News, “What they were saying was, ‘Knock that boy out!’ ‘White boy.’ ‘Cracker.’ They were saying, ‘Knock that white boy out.’”
The victim said not only did the group taunt him with racial slurs, they also videotaped the incident.
Cleveland Police hustled and found three of the suspects running from the scene.
They apprehended an 18 and 19-year-old guy, plus a 16 year-old-girl who had the video on her phone.
DOUBLE STANDARD IN KNOCK OUT GAME HATE CRIME CHARGES …
A federal grand jury in Houston, Texas indicted 27 year old Conrad Alvin Barrett on Thursday for hate crime charges. Conrad Alvin Barrett was arrested in connection with the “knockout game” assault of a 79 year old black man. The elderly man suffered a broken jaw. According to reports, Barrett recorded himself on his cellphone attacking the 79 year old man, laughing and saying “Knockout” as he ran away, as the man fell to the ground.
A white Houston-area man accused of sucker punching an elderly black man has been indicted on a hate crime charge.
A federal grand jury in Houston indicted 27-year-old Conrad Alvin Barrett on Thursday.
Investigators say Barrett slugged the 79-year-old victim, breaking his jaw in two places, in a Nov. 24 attack in Katy. They say he laughed and shouted “knockout” as the man fell to the ground.
Investigators say Barrett videoed the attack on his cellphone and shared the recording.
Is this a hate crime, probably so. However, so are the many other black on white “knock out game” assaults that go uncharged. The majority of attacks in this sick and twisted “knock out game” have been black on white crimes, yet it is only the few cases of white on black crime that get charged as hate crimes. So why the double standard from the Eric Holder DOJ? And we thought that Justice is supposed to be blind.
The following was not considered a hate crime “knock out game” assault by a young black punk on an elderly white woman but instead New York cops call video taped ‘Knockout’ attack harassment. Are you friggin kidding me?
NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force Arrest Barry Baldwin in Brooklyn, NY for at Least Seven “Knockout Game” Assaults Against White Women
35 year old Barry Baldwin of East New York has been arrested by the NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force for at least seven “knockout game” assaults against white and most Jewish women. Baldwin is being charged with 6 counts of assault as a hate crime, aggravated harassment, attempted assault, menacing charges and one count of endangering the welfare of a child for punching out the mom who fell onto her 7 year old.
The victims were all white, females ages 20 to 78. Baldwin was initially charged with hate crimes for targeting Jewish victims, but those charges were later downgraded. Because of course a black man targeting white and predominantly Jewish women could never be guilty of a hate crime. Baldwin was arraigned Monday on five assaults, none as a hate crime, according to court papers. Prosecutors didn’t comment on the reasons for the downgraded charges. He’s being held on a $10,000 bail.
Cowards: Prosecutors fail to charge Baldwin with a HATE CRIME
The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force busted a Brooklyn man for at least seven “knockout” assaults, cops said Friday.
Barry Baldwin, 35, punched out the victims between Nov. 9 and Christmas Eve in Canarsie and Midwood, police said.
All of the victims were white women and most were Jewish, a law-enforcement source said. At least two of the attacks occurred on the Sabbath.
“Everyone will sleep a little easier,” said Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who said the attacks frightened the community.
Barry Baldwin’s hate crime “knock out” victims:
- Nov. 9, 2013: Baldwin allegedly punched a 78-year-old Midwood woman while she pushed her great-granddaughter’s stroller at Avenue L and East Fifth Street.
- Dec. 7, 2013: At around 2:40 p.m. he punched a 20-year-old in the head.
- Dec. 21, 2013: The victim was a 33-year-old mom walking with her 7-year-old daughter on Elm Street near East 12th Street Midwood.
- Dec 24, 2013: A 78-year-old sitting in on a bench in Canarsie was the next to suffer the crazed attacker’s wrath on Christmas Eve.
- Dec. 24, 2013: Fifteen minutes later, he attacked another elderly woman nearby at corner of East 93rd Street and Seaview Avenue.
- Dec. 26, 2013: A 38-year-old woman ducked Baldwin’s swing when he attacked her on Dec. 26, on Seaview Avenue in Canarsie.
- Dec. 27, 2013: Baldwin attacked his final victim on the same street while she talked on a cellphone.
US DOJ Charges White Suspect, 27 Year Old Conrad Alvin Barrett, for “Knockout Game” Targeting 79 Year Old Black Man in Texas
The President Barack Obama/Attorney General Eric Holder US Department of Justice is finally going to charge an individual in connection with the “Knockout” game with a hate crime … of course the punk suspect is white.
The DOJ for the the southern district of Texas has arrested and charged 27 year old Conrad Alvin Barrett with a “hate crime” in connection with the “knockout game” assault of a 79 year old man. According to reports, Barrett recorded himself on his cellphone attacking the 79 year old man, laughing and saying “Knockout” as he ran away. Might this be a hate crime? Yes, it may just be, but what is ridiculous and borders on pathetic is the fact that an overwhelming majority of this sick “knockout game” epidemic has been black on white crime and any mention of a “hate crime” is taboo. Personally, its pretty sick for a 27 year old to break the jaw of an elderly, frail man no matter who is what color.
However, in this administration it appears that color always does matter. As the Jawa Report opines, so what makes this case so unique that the DOJ would finally charge one of these punks with a “hate crime,” why the victim is black.
Federal authorities said Thursday they have arrested and charged a Texas man in connection with the “knockout game,” accusing him of a hate crime for targeting a black man for a vicious street attack.
Most knockout victims that have appeared in news reports have been white, but the Justice Department said in this instance the victim was a 79-year-old black man, and stepped in with federal charges.
“Suspected crimes of this nature will simply not be tolerated,” said Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. attorney for the southern district of Texas. “Evidence of hate crimes will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted with the assistance of all our partners to the fullest extent of the law.”
The Justice Department said it filed a criminal complaint against 27-year-old Conrad Alvin Barrett on Tuesday and arrested him on Thursday.
According to Justice officials, Mr. Barrett recorded himself on his cellphone attacking the 79-year-old man, laughing and saying “Knockout” as he runs away.
The 79-year-old man had his jaw broken in the Nov. 24 attack.
No one is saying that this assault probably was not a hate crime as the suspect said and did some pretty incriminating things. The issue is, why aren’t assaults with regards to the knockout game when it is black on white considered a hate crime? It is just another case of the Obama administration causing strife amongst the races.
Investigators say they only found out about the case because Barrett was showing off the video at a bar in Fulshear the night of the attack. He allegedly showed it to an off-duty police officer he’d just met.
On his phone, authorities found not only the video of the attack but 10 others, including one where Barrett allegedly says, “The plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?”
He also makes derogatory statements toward African Americans, including one video in which he says that they “haven’t fully experienced the blessing of evolution.”
In his defense, Barrett’s attorney, George Parnham, says his client has severe mental health issues, that he’s bi-polar and on heavy medication.
Group of 10 Black Youths Brutally Attack White Couple in Brooklyn, NY in Hate Crime …“Get those crackers!” … “Get that white whore!” … “White motherf*ckers!”
Hate crime in Brooklyn as a white couple was brutally attacked by a gang of black teens ranging in age from 12 to 18.
According to the NY Daily News, the attack occurred at 7 p.m. Monday at Avenue U at E. 58th St. near Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin when the gang of black youths crossed the street in front of the vehicle of Ronald Russo, 30, and his wife, Alanna. Russo had the green light, honked the horn for the group to get out of the way. That is all it took for these punks to go off into a racial attack. Ronald Russo was dragged to the ground, punched and kicked in the head. His wife was yanked to the pavement by her hair as the the black gang repeatedly shouted the racial slurs,“Get those crackers!” … “Get that white whore!” … “White motherf*ckers!”
A group of 10 black youths — one of them a 12-year-old girl — surrounded a white couple’s car in Brooklyn, viciously beating the husband and yanking the wife to the pavement by her hair as they peppered the two with racial slurs, authorities said.
“Get those crackers!” some of them screamed, according to court papers. “Get that white whore!”
The confrontation erupted about 7 p.m. Monday, as the marauding group crossed Avenue U at E. 58th St. near Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin.
Ronald Russo, 30, and his wife, Alanna, apparently had the green light and the husband honked at the group to get out of the way. The rowdy kids started kicking the car, according to the criminal complaint. Ronald Russo got out to check on potential damage to his vehicle.
And that’s when all hell broke loose.
Barack Obama, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were unavailable for comment.
Four teens have been arrested so far for the incident. Kashawn Kirton, 18, has been charged with gang assault, harassment and menacing charges, all as hate crimes. Daehrell Finch, 17, has been charged with gang assault, assault, menacing and harassment but does not face hate-crime charges.Two more teens, a 12-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy, have also been arrested, but their names have not been released.
Kirton, who is a freshman at St. Francis College, told the News that he had nothing to do with the attack, and was inside a Lowe’s store when it occurred: “I have relatives who are white. Cousins and stuff,” he said. “My school is mainly white. More than half my friends are white. I wouldn’t use words like that.” He added that he believes he was arrested because he was wearing the same outfit as one of the assailants.
Polk County Sheriff’s Office Arrest Two Teen Girls “Primary Harassers” for Aggravated Stalking in the Cyber-Bullying Death of 12 Year Old Rebecca Sedwick in Lakeland, FL (Update: Perps ID’d as Katelyn Roman, 12, & Guadalupe Shaw, 14)
Two teen girls charged for aggravated stalking in the cyber-bullying death of 12 year old Rebecca Ann Sedwick.
The Polk County Sheriff’s office has arrested two teen girls, one 14 and the other 12, in the relentless cyber-bullying death of 12 year old Rebecca Sedwick in Lakeland, FL. The two teen girls were arrested Monday night as authorities referred to then as the “primary harassers.” The police decided to arrest the two teen female punks after the older one posted this onto her Facebook page on Saturday: “Yes, I bullied Rebecca and she killed herself and I don’t give a f*ck.” According to the probable cause affidavit, Rebecca Sedwick was bullied from December 2012 to February 2013, however, Rebecca’s mother, Tricia Norman, claims that the bullying began long before then and continued until Rebecca killed herself. Sheriff Grady Judd of Polk County said that the bullying lead to Rebecca Sedwick’s suicide. Gee, ya think?
Personally, I think these two should be charged with murder. The bullying led directly to this Rebecca’s death. How about charging a “hate” crime? What is more hateful than what this group of people did? What the did is the definition of a “hate” crime, color does not matter.
For the Polk County sheriff’s office, which has been investigating the cyberbullying suicide of a 12-year-old Florida girl, the Facebook comment was impossible to disregard.
In Internet shorthand it began “Yes, ik” — I know — “I bullied Rebecca nd she killed herself.” The writer concluded that she didn’t care, using an obscenity to make the point and a heart as a perverse flourish. Five weeks ago, Rebecca Ann Sedwick, a seventh grader in Lakeland in central Florida, jumped to her death from an abandoned cement factory silo after enduring a year, on and off, of face-to-face and online bullying.
Both were charged with aggravated stalking, a third-degree felony and will be processed through the juvenile court system. Neither had an arrest record. The older girl was taken into custody in the juvenile wing of the Polk County Jail. The younger girl, who the police said expressed remorse, was released to her parents under house arrest.
Sick, sick, sick … what the hell is the youth of today thinking in that they can say and do anything and think there are no consequences? More from the NY Times. And where were the parents? Way to monitor your children even after the situation came to light.
The older of the two girls acknowledged to the police that she had bullied Rebecca. She said she had sent Rebecca a Facebook message saying that “nobody” liked her, the affidavit said. The girl also texted Rebecca that she wanted to “fight” her, the police said. But the bullying did not end there; Rebecca was told to “kill herself” and “drink bleach and die” among other things, the police added.
Brimming with outrage and incredulity, the sheriff said in a news conference on Tuesday that he was stunned by the older girl’s Saturday Facebook posting. But he reserved his harshest words for the girl’s parents for failing to monitor her behavior, after she had been questioned by the police, and for allowing her to keep her cellphone.
“I’m aggravated that the parents are not doing what parents should do: after she is questioned and involved in this, why does she even have a device?” Sheriff Judd said. “Parents, who instead of taking that device and smashing it into a thousand pieces in front of that child, say her account was hacked.”
Judd identified the two girls who were arrested as Katelyn Roman, 12, and Guadalupe Shaw, 14, during a news conference Tuesday morning in Winter Haven.
Both girls have been charged with felony aggravated stalking.
On Tuesday night Roman’s father spoke with Channel 9′s Renee Stoll about his daughter’s arrest.
“I feel horrible about the whole situation,” he said. “Katelyn’s very remorseful, feels really bad about the whole situation.”
Guadalupe’s neighbor, George Colom, said he’s not surprised to hear she was involved. In fact, Colom said Guadalupe’s siblings are known as bullies in the neighborhood and that he was even harassed by her brother at one point.
The police say this might be a hate crime. MIGHT BE? Witness said Suspect Vowed To Attack ‘Next White Person Who Walks By’. MIGHT BE, EH?
62 year old Jeffrey Babbitt is in a coma and brain dead following a violent attack in Union Square in New York City on Wednesday afternoon. The suspect, 31 year old Lashawn Marten, attacked a total of three people before finally being arrested by police. One witness told police that the suspect said prior to the attack, “He said ‘the next white person who walks by I’m going to [expletive].’” Calling Attorney General Eric Holder, what say you?
Talk about your innocent victims minding their own business.
Hate crime victim – Jeffrey Babbitt
Police said that the attack may have been a hate crime.
Friends of Jeffrey Babbitt, 62, were shocked to hear about the random act of violence that left the gentle, retired train conductor in a coma, CBS 2?s Dave Carlin reported on Friday.
“I don’t believe that. I don’t know why that happened. He is very nice,” Igor Sapozhnikov said.
Babbitt was minding his own business as he walked through the crowd near the chess boards in Union Square when a man made a hateful announcement and began his rampage, witnesses said.
“He said ‘the next white person who walks by I’m going to [expletive],’” one woman said. “His fist went in and the man’s head bobbed and he hit the ground and you could hear his skull hitting the ground.”
Yes, this was a hate crime, but for some unknown reason President Obama, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the NAACP have yet to make any comment, claim the victim could have been their son or have demanded “no justice, no peace”.
Because of Marten’s alleged comments about targeting white people the incident could result in hate crime charges in addition to felony assault charges, according to Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.
“Obviously our Hate Crimes Task Force is involved in aspects of that case,” Kelly said.
HATE CRIME: Ginger Slepski Brutally Beaten by Four Black Teens in North Side of Pittsburgh, PA Says Attack Was ‘Racially Motivated’ … ‘Shut up White Bitch’
A note to President Barack Obama, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, NAACP and Attorney General Eric Holder … the following is what would be considered a racially motivated hate crime …
As reported at WPXI, Ginger Slepski was brutally attacked by a group of black female teens after Slepski stopped her vehicle to confront the girls after they had thrown a bottle at her car. When Ginger Slepski got out of her vehicle she was brutally attacked by the teens as they yelled at Slepski, “Shut up white bitch.” The other said, “Get that white bitch.” According to Slepski, she tried to get back into her car, but they grabbed her by her hair. Then one of the attackers punched her in the head and I was on a set of concrete steps and my head hit the concrete so hard. Then Slepski said, “Then they all got on top of me and all their hands were in my hair. They kept telling each other to, ‘Kick her in the head. Kick her head in the concrete.”
Hmm, where is the MSM demanding justice?
A woman who said she was brutally attacked by a group of black teenagers in Pittsburgh’s North Side Sunday said the girls savagely beat her while calling her racial slurs.
Ginger Slepski said she suffered multiple injuries, including torn shoulder ligaments. She said she thought the girls were going to kill her.
“I thought it was so animalistic. So violent. I’m so afraid for these girls to get out and walk the streets,” Slepski said.
Police said Slepski was savagely beaten after the girls threw a bottle at her car on Concord Street and she stopped to confront them.
“I was mad. I knew they were younger. I thought they were in their early 20s. I got out and said, ‘What is your problem?’” Slepski said.
All four African-American girls then called her names before getting physically violent.
“They yelled, ‘Shut up white [expletive].’ The other said, ‘Get that white [expletive],’” Slepski said.
Paging Attorney General Eric Holder. What a joke that Holder would actually contemplate civil rights and hate crime charges against George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Marin where there was no racial motivation, but in a case like the above attack where there is an obvious racial component, all we hear from Holder is the sound of crickets. Maybe Holder should be charged with a hate crime for his bias in determining what is and is not a hate crime depending on the color of one’s skin who is the attacker.
Well here’s an easy case, Eric. It won’t be too hard to prove a violation of 18 USC 249 or 18 USC 245 in this context. No outrageous self-defense defenses here.
But like in all the other similar cases you refuse to prosecute, the victim here wasn’t one of “your people.” Ginger’s parents didn’t endure the sort of garbage that your wife’s parents did down south. So she isn’t entitled to equal protection of the law, right?
Make no mistake, Ginger isn’t the only victim who won’t get justice from Justice just because of her race. Neither will the parents who were beaten at the Wisconsin State Fair. Nor will the parents in Ohio who saw thugs come on their lawn shouting racial slurs before they beat them.
Oh yeah, ans as The Other McCain reminds us, what say you Eric Holder about the “hate” speech coming from DHS Employs Deranged Race Warrior Ayo Kimathi who has only been placed on administrative leave with pay? Huh?

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallon Says Barack Obama Should Express Condolences for Aussie Baseball Player Christopher Lane’s Death at the Hands of 3 Board Thug Teens
Yet another Obamanation …
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallon appeared on Fox News Sunday and stated that President Barack Obama should express his condolences for “trill killed” murdered Aussie baseball player Christopher Lane at the hands of three board teens. The governor stated that it would be a nice gesture. Ya think? How can the Obama not weigh in on this story seeing that Australian government officials have made comments and have even talked about boycotting America. Obama certainly had no issue interjecting himself into the Trayvon Martin shooting, or when his Harvard professor was arrested by police who “acted stupidly”. However, there is silence when the victims do not look like Obama’s son, had he had one.
The question here is not that it would be a nice gesture for Barack Obama to address the issue and offer his condolences, the fact is it is his job and obligation to do so.
President Obama should express condolences for the Australian baseball player killed this week in Oklahoma, that state’s governor said Sunday.
“I think it would be a nice gesture for him to do that, especially since the country of Australia has expressed its sentiments as to the murder itself,” Gov. Mary Fallon (R) said during an appearance on Fox News Sunday.
Lane was killed in a shooting in which three teenagers shot him while he was jogging. The teens said they killed him because they were bored.
Even though, one of the murderous teens, James Edwards, sent out tweets that he hated white people on his Twitter account, Jason Hicks, the district attorney for Stephens County, where Lane was killed, said there was no evidence to treat the case as a hate crime.
